I have been working at Douglas Emmett

Pros

If someone wants to gain more experience in Real Estate , Douglas Emmett is a good source of learning; otherwise there is no future.

Cons

Very low compensation, they pay how much they want, even it is not comparable to other companies. Everyone complain about their salaries every day.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Pay decent salaries to employees not just pay for your houses in Malibu. And be professional to all level of employees.

    I worked at Douglas Emmett full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    OK salary and good health benefit package.

    Cons

    This primarily commercial property management company does not know how to effectively manage, and/or assist, their residential employees to achieve success. When a supervisor was advised training was necessary, the supervisor replied, "If you want training, you're working for the wrong company".

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Learn that residential management has far more challenges for the on-site staff than commercial management.
